"What are you doing?" The work and questions would continue. The wool needed to be washed, dried, carded, and spun. The little girl somersaulted as she watched the dog chase his tail and her mother turn the wheel of her spinning wheel. Whir, whir, whir! There would be much time to play because "Fluffy pile, takes a while," but after a while she would fall fast asleep curled up in a chair. The yarn would have to be dyed into the "deepest blue" and when the autumn leaves begin to leave the trees her mother would begin to knit. "What are you doing?"
This beautiful, lyrical story tells the story of farm life and lets us "follow the journey from sheep to sweater." I loved the totally innocent and realistic quality of this tale. We learn about the "journey" when the little girl continually asked questions. For example, as we learn about the process, we learn that the wool needs to be washed ("Soap and steam, fleecy clean"). You can see the dish soap on the counter, something a traditional hand-spinner would use. The reader will love the homey feel of this book and the journey can be an enjoyable learning experience or simply a fun one to read. The delightful art work caught every little nuance of the process and meshed perfectly with the story. This is a little country experience you're going to love!
